Bell Helicopter delivers four 412EPs to Argentina


Bell Helicopter, December 11, 2017 - Fort Worth, Texas - Bell Helicopter, a Textron Inc. company, announced today the delivery of four Bell 412EP helicopters to Argentina.

The Government of Argentina will use these aircraft for search-and-rescue operations; humanitarian assistance and disaster relief; peacekeeping support; scientific operations in the Antarctic; and other missions.

“This is an important milestone for Bell Helicopter, and we are proud to deliver four Bell 412EPs to improve the safety and security of Argentinean citizens,” said Jay Ortiz, vice president, Latin America.

With a cruise speed of 122 knots (140 miles per hour), a range of 357 nautical miles, and an expansive cabin easily accommodating 13 passengers and two crew members, the Bell 412EP is capable of fitting multiple mission criteria.
